Default How to Disable Factory Alarm on 98 Grand Caravan?

I have a 98 Grand Caravan with 3.8. The factory alarm lately is very touchy and goes off way too often (like 4 in the morning at home, during the day at work nearly every day, etc.). So how do I go about disabling the alarm? Or is there some fix I can do to make it work normally? Thanks!

Ok..had the same problem today..and had to have a mechanic come to my house and fix it. Heres what u do to disarm and reset the alarm set on the 98 dodge grand caravan without using a remote. Roll down driver side window, hit the lock switch on the driver door panel to unlock all doors, stick arm through window and place key in ignition to the on postion(dont. open car door & dont turn )caron), disconnect

Turn car on and the alarm has been reset and will allow u to drive.

should be able to cycle the key in any door lock (front doors or hatch) and shut off the alarm. Not until the newer models (around 2009) did they start eliminating the key cylinder switch. The only way to permanently disable the alarm system is to replace the PCM and the BCM at the same time and then disconnect all of the key cylinder switches.
